Disability Justice Strategy

Disability Justice Strategy 2019-2029

A Strategy to address unequal access to justice in the ACT

Over the next ten years the Disability Justice Strategy will guide an important shift in how the justice system interacts with people with disability. In order to be effective, the actions will need to be innovative, consultative and responsive to changing circumstances.

The First Action Plan 2019- 2023 sits under the Disability Justice Strategy and describes the first four years of work and the commitments made by stakeholders to ensure the ACT provides equal access to justice for people with disability.


Below is an accessible video on the outcomes of the first year of the disability justice strategy?
